Meet Laura Clise, Founder & CEO of Intentionalist, Encouraging You to Spend it Like it Matters in Your Local Community
Laura Clise began as a corporate intrapreneur, holding various roles leading sustainability, corporate responsibility, supplier diversity, and external communications. However, her passion to drive social and environmental impact led her to become the founder and CEO of the Intentionalist.
Laura is a regular speaker on sustainability, climate change mitigation, and diversity and inclusion, as well as serving on the board of directors for Athlete Ally and IslandWood. She has also won several awards such as the LGBT Leadership Award issued by the National Diversity Council.
The Intentionalist: What do they do?
At the Intentionalist, they believe that small businesses are important to the social and economic fabric of our communities as they bring cultural diversity, contribute philanthropically, and simply make each community better. That is why they created an online directory that helps you spend like it matters in your local community.
The Intentionalist is powered by a small but mighty team that is truly diverse in both identity and experience. They make it easy for you to find local restaurants, bars, gyms, shops, and more owned by women, people of colour, veterans, LGBTQ, families, and differently-abled people.
Local businesses are places where we come together, whether to make new connections or celebrate longtime friendships."
Not only does the Intentionalist serve as a directory, but it also fosters community connection through business profiles based on interviews with local business owners, and meet-ups that provide the opportunity to meet them and learn about the stories behind their businesses.
We are so proud to feature Laura and the Intentionalist on InvestHer Directory, the world’s first global directory of companies founded or co-founded by women.
